winners and losers, determining who gets educator and how they get educated, those forms of capitalism seem to be gaining the upper hand in the global debate and we have to recognize if we don't address the flaws in our own system like the flaws associated with any college or the inability to create jobs for the free rein given to big investors at the expense of everybody else we are going to lose our influence, the model is going to change and we're going to be at a disadvantage. >> host: what is china doing right? >> guest: they are growing fast. by 2030, china is the second-biggest economy in the world right now. we think of it as an exporting economy but their growth has been internal. by 23 which is not that long way although it sounds far away, they will be the world's largest consumer economy. they will be the ones setting the trend in terms of one car is like and what a washing machine is like and what and ipad is like. they are also building more cities than anybody else, going from 75 cities of 1 million people to two 20 cities of 1 million people to almost 20 cities of ten m

them education made this new economy. so it wasn't that the government was spending. government and intentionally in a sense was restructuring the economy making it prepared for the post war period. as also an interesting book in the period in the 30's the government was actually giving a lot of investment and that increased productivity and that after the war it increased their returns to the investment in the private sector and so it created a context that was done during the war that said we had public spending provided a context with higher returns. this is an important point. in general, we've got this notion that the sector is complementary to the private investment. i mean, there is a lot of things that people will do if they believe there is an adequate transportation network if they believe that they are going to have skilled workers available because they have had good education to be sure. >> i tend to strip down to the minimal story and would be just about the debt and of course what we are doing right now we have states and government cancelling infrastructure proje

on the job we have a good public education because the government subsidizes student loans. students are able to acquire tremendous amounts of money so the colleges can keep jacking up tuition every year because they know they will get the money from the government. so unfortunately we have destroyed a generation of americans because we have made them borrow a tremendous amount of money they are going to struggle to repay to get the liberal arts degree is that have no relevance in the employment world pity and now they are broke and they've learned nothing. they squandered five or six years of their lives that could have been used productively to use money and to acquire skills that would have provided them with a comfortable living. there are certain things going to college makes a lot of sense that the vast majority of college graduates do jobs that high school graduates could do. they drop out of high school, so this is all a myth that everybody has to go to college, that the solution is to spend more money. it's all left the leave come myth. the biggest losers are the kids that squander t
